Emmerdale spoiler sees Rhona in turmoil with the arrival of rapist Pierce’s doomed son

Emmerdale villain Pierce Harris (played by Jonathan Wrather) might be banged up behind bars for all eternity after raping poor Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry) and murdering her partner Graham Foster (Andrew Scarborough), but that doesn't mean his story is over in the ITV soap.

Bosses confirmed that the character will make a reappearance – at least in name – when his son lands in the Dales to "ruffle a few feathers and flutter a few hearts in the village."

Actor Darcy Grey joins the cast as Marcus Dean and considering she's finally starting to get on with her life after the trauma inflicted by Pierce, there's no doubt that Marcus's unexpected entrance will have a huge impact on Rhona.

Producer Kate Brooks said: "Marcus' arrival will certainly ruffle a few feathers and flutter a few hearts in the village. However, people will soon realise there's more to Marcus than merely being the son of Pierce."

She continued: "But will our villagers give him a chance, or will he be forever doomed to live in the shadow of his father's heinous crimes?

"We're delighted to welcome Darcy to the show and we're sure he'll certainly make quite the impression on villagers and viewers alike."

Darcy added: "When my agent sent me the character of Marcus Dean, I was quietly smiling inside.

"We share so many similarities, both the good – and perhaps – some of the bad! I thought 'I know who this kid is.'

"To then get the call to say that the role was mine was one of those pinch-yourself moments we actors simply dream of."

He continued: "For Marcus, the battle of being torn between wanting to forget his relationship with his Dad but also ultimately, wanting to simply be loved is a challenge many of us face, and one that I hope I can bring some truth to.

"He is such an open book, with such an uncertain future that I just can't wait for you all to see where his journey in the village takes him!"
